This volume of Linda McCartney's photographs recalls the stars and celebrities of the 1960s. It includes the Grateful Dead sliding down porch steps in Haight Ashbury, the Beatles on stage and off, a pouting Mick Jagger, and cameos of Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison in concert.
Independent of her status as Mrs. Paul McCartney and former keyboard player/backup vocalist with the post-Beatles group Wings, McCartney has cultivated a successful photographic career. She is an intimate of the rock luminaries documented in this coffee-table album of 221 duotone and 32 color photographs, most of which were previously unpublished. A devotee of natural light and the spontaneous moment, the sum of McCartney's photographs--unlike the highly stylized and technically manipulated rock portraits of Annie Leibovitz--reflect a relaxed and unforced quality. Portraits include a 19-year-old Jackson Browne mugging, a stunning Jimi Hendrix in performance, Bob Dylan scratching his ear, Frank Zappa holding his baby daughter Moon Unit, and Janis Joplin hoisting a bottle of Southern Comfort. The photographs constitute a lush and lovely family album. More often than not, however, the author's accompanying text has the distracting presence of a boring slide show. This is a luxury acquisition for big budgets. The unsurpassed meat and potatoes picture book is still Michael Ochs's Rock Archives ( LJ 12/84).
